GREAT BOOK, but not really for preschool -- it is more a 1st - 3rd kind of book. (or older!) So funny and surprising and creepy. Maybe even a Halloween choice for the over K crowd.

Delightful.

Love this book, especially watching the little ones faces when they are searching for the rabbit. Their eyes get as big as Friday! They look at you, they look back to the book...whaaaat? they asked.

I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen is a clear-cut observation of a bear in his natural habitat, asking other animals if they have seen his missing prized possession.

What that description did not tell you is how unbelievably charming and oddball Klassen has made this story. Bear, standing upright, interrogates a different animal. Nearly every conversation is alike. No one has seen his hat and bear retorts, "OK. Thank you anyway." before he goes on to the next creature. The whole thing reads like a classic comedy bit.

A very polite, yet oblivious bear goes on a search for his hat. This wonderfully humourous trek is perfect in its simplicity.

A bear has lost his hat. To find it he questions a variety of woodland creatures including a fox, a frog, a turtle, a possum, a dear, a snake and a rabbit. The rabbit, for the record, refuses to acknowledge having seen the hat in spite of the fact that he appears to be wearing it. And when the bear realizes the true culprit there will be a price to pay. A deeply amusing price. Painted with Chinese ink and digital art, Klassen’s book falls into that growing category of subversive picture books out there. What makes it stand out, however, is how beautifully put together it all is.
